“The true enemy for many is the daily grind of commuting.” That’s according to Mark Dixon, CEO of flexible office provider IWG. And he has a point. People were only too delighted to give up their commute during the pandemic; for many, the resulting time and cost savings were the biggest perk of working from home.
The festive season offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy a terrific tipple or devour a delicious treat with loved ones. For private PAs and household staff, luxury Christmas hampers make this experience even easier, with a boutique selection of delicacies carefully chosen, packaged and delivered to your door just in time for December 25. They also double as gifts for a principal’s family and friends – after all, who wouldn’t delight in a delivery of sumptuous snacks?
We’ve chosen five of the best options for your household, ensuring the Christmas cheer continues well into the New Year.
The Harrodian, Harrods
